Thomas visits Del Valle

Thomas Stacey (sent by British Council and Dirección de Capacitación de la Provincia de BA)visited our classrooms. He was at Escuela de Educación Media Nº3 and at EAS (Escuela Agrotécnica Salesiana) in Del Valle. All of us enjoyed listening to a native speaker of English. He made us feel comfortable. My students could use "their" English to communicate with him !!!. One of them even showed him how a flogger dances and some of them showed him the school around. He was always very polite, encouraging students to speak, making his best to understand and he kept a charming smile all the time. Tom used plain English and exchanged funny expressions . He taught : "y'alright " and learnt : " juega un montón"...
Thanks Thomas !!!!!

Now to my students, you have to leave a comment here: maybe the question he answered to you or your mates, something interesting you heard, anything you want to share with other students from another classrooms.

This blog is for you to communicate, remember that.
